    As with all Sendak

    As with 'Little Bear,' this book is incredible for keeping a child's attention.

    A Sweet, Fun Story

    The best books for young children are books that Mom and Dad can enjoy as much as their kids. The 'Little Bear' books fall into this category. My 2 and a half year old enjoys the stories and will sit entranced through the entire book. I think this book is also a great introduction to chapter books. I like how all the stories tie together, and the illustrations are great. Emily is adorable. A great book to share!
